Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

There is some passionate kissing in a couple of scenes.

Teenage boys in small, tight swimsuits (during swim class) are seen.

There is a full scene of boys in the shower (partial nudity, not too bad). As one boy walks towards the changing area of the shower room, he is seen walking naked (his bare buttocks are seen) and another boy makes a comment about his penis.

There is one scene that shows a girl in a shower. She is only seen from the waist up, except in one shot through blurry glass.

There is brief nudity in one scene where someone magically lifts up the skirt of a girl, seen from the back, revealing that she's wearing nothing under it.


In some scenes, you see men being thrown around in a building.

A teenage boy insults another, shoves him against a locker, holds him by the throat, and punches him in the face; the teenage boy reciprocates by punching the first boy in the stomach.

Two men get into a fight, but it is not serious.

A man is thrown against a wall numerous times.

The characters have supernatural powers and the majority of the violence is caused by supernatural forces that come from those characters (no gore).


There is some moderate use of profanity, but the language in itself is not pervasively strong.


A woman is seen drinking liquor in one scene and is seen smoking in another scene.


There are a few scenes that will make you jump in alarm or surprise.

In a few scenes, a man is chasing another man and it may make you think "get up!" or "no, don't go there!".

There is one scene that shows a dead man in a car.

Ghost-like images appear a couple of times.
